Brides Up North Featured Supplier and fabulous photographer Matt Ethan Photography brightened my day by pinging this little burst of sunshine into the wedding blog’s inbox.  Let’s get Monday off to a sunny start with Andy and Julia’s beautiful real engagement shoot.  Have a wonderful week Brides Up North!

Matt Ethan Photography explains it all:  We headed out to Tynemouth (on the North East coast next to Newcastle Upon Tyne) because Andy and Julia love it there! The beach is fantastic.

We were so fortunate with the sunset.  Andy asked if we could meet mid-evening, and I was a little worried about miserable cloudy weather… but he was spot on! We ended up with these amazing images capturing the setting sun.

They are such a sweet couple, Andy would regularly pick Julia up so that she didn’t have to climb over fences!  Very cute
